SPOnG took the chance to interview video game music creator, Tommy Tallarico, during London Games Week. During the extensive, 7-page interview which covers the past, present and future of gaming, the maestro also provided insight into the mind and working practices of Shigeru Miyamoto during work on Metroid Prime
"What Miyamoto did was say to me, ?Look, forget about all the visuals and everything else ? I want you to just make really awesome sounds. Really awesome weapon sounds. I don?t want to give you any direction at all, I just want you to make it sound cool?. Then what the development team did was take my sounds and they created a lot of the weapons around my sound design."
